Types of Databases
There are two major categories of databases today: Relational and Non-relationship databases. Each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at each to get a better sense.
Relational databases emerged in the 70’s to store data according to a schema that basically allows data to be displayed as tables with rows and columns. The tables in a relational database have keys associated with them like primary key, unique key, etc.
Advantages of Relational Databases
- Relational databases are usually well-documented and contain mature technologies that have been evolving over the decades by a number of corporations.
- SQL standards are well-defined and accepted across many technologies.
- Lots of veteran and new developers have experience with SQL and RDBMS.
Some Popular Relational Databases:
- Microsoft SQL Server
Non-relation databases a.k.a. NoSQL databases are a popular alternative to relational databases. These are typically integrated with complex web applications. A key difference between NoSQL and relational databases are that the relational databases schemas define how all data inserted into the database must be typed and composed.
NoSQL databases allows unstructured and semi-structured data to be stored and manipulated. Some popular types are: key-value stores, document stores, graph databases.
Advantages of Non-relational Databases
- They are schema-free data models that are flexible and easier to administer.
- They are horizontally scalable and fault-tolerant.
- Data can easily be distributed across different nodes.
Some Popular Non-relational Databases:.
- Elastic Search
- Amazon DynamoDB
